Hair fall, frizzy hair, dandruff, dull complexion and even eczema. Many of us face these problems almost every day.
And what do we do…we change our shampoos or body wash because the previous ones are not effective anymore. Yes, the change may show minor improvement for some time and then the cycle starts again.
Ever stopped to wonder that perhaps the solution lies in not the product used but the water itself? While chemicals such as chlorine kill pathogens in the water, it may affect the skin’s micro biome and make hair dry and frizzy. Chlorinated water can also have long term effects on our skin.
Shower Filters for Skin & Hair
Luckily, Shower Filters provide an ideal solution to this problem. They help minimize and even completely get rid of chlorine and other chemicals. Furthermore, there’s a variety of them easily available in the market. Some water filters like the Sonaki contain vitamin C which generates antioxidants. Users of such filters have experienced lustrous hair and reduced hair fall, radiant skin and some also claim that their eczema is better controlled.
7 Reasons to Start Using a Shower Filter
Below are some compelling reasons why you should start using a Shower Filter.
- Relief for skin ailment such as Atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis or eczema can be caused by a number of factors, including dry skin. Chemically treated water can cause dry skin which can lead to eczema. People who are allergic to chlorine, chloramine and other chemicals that are commonly added to water are more prone to such skin conditions. Using a shower filter to filter out these chemicals can provide relief.
- Neutralises 99.9% of chlorine and chloramine
Chlorine in the water can be breathed in especially when taking a hot shower. The skin also absorbs the chlorine found in the water. This makes the skin and scalp dry and irritable. Shower filters with Vitamin C are able to filter out 99.9% of the chlorine and chloramine found in water!
- Reduces chlorine caused dandruff
Chlorine destroys proteins in the hair fibre making it rough and prone to damage. Chlorine dries out the hair and this further aggravates dandruff production. Water filters which remove chlorine can help minimise dandruff caused by chlorine.
- Safe for babies and young children
Shower filters filter out chemicals that may be harmful to the sensitive skin of babies and young children. Many Korean Shower Filters also come fortified with Vitamin C which is great for baby’s sensitive skin.
- Anti- oxidants as a form of protection
Shower Filters with Vitamin C contain anti-oxidants that defend the skin from free radicals which causes the skin to age. Anti-oxidants also makes the skin glow, looking fresher and younger.
- Prevents respiratory problems caused by vaporized chlorine particles
During a hot shower, chlorine is re vaporised, inhaled and transferred directly to the bloodstream. Prolong exposure to chlorine can cause respiratory problems such as asthma and sinus attacks.
- Safe for pets
Filtered water also protects your pet’s fur and skin from chlorine. It can also be used for your fish aquarium.
